I.A.L. Diamond wrote stories and screenplays in Hollywood during a four decade career. After collaborating with Billy Wilder on the screenplay for Love in the Afternoon in 1957, Diamond worked closely with Wilder for the rest of his career, writing screenplays with Wilder for 12 movies between 1957 and 1981. Their screenplays were nominated three times for Academy Awards (including the screenplay for Some Like it Hot in 1959), and they won an Oscar for their original screenplay for The Apartment in 1960 which also won for Best Picture.
The Diamonds were buying art actively in the late 1950s through the 1960s and their focus was on Contemporary Art of the day, with a special affinity for European Contemporary Art.
